anyway of killing 20 year old llylandii that have never been topped. We cut our side - but contrary neighbour that owns the trees wont even discuss it.
They tower way above the height of out two storey house. Any chance they will topple over if we keep trimming our side Evil or Very Mad

who owns the trees? if branches are cut from one side then this destabilises the tree. If you cut away branches on the South or South Western then there is a good possibility that the wind will take them.

My neighbour owns the trees. Branches cut on the eastern side and it get only slightly southern wind. So it looks like a long wait so. if anybody built a wall that height they'd be in trouble with the local authoritys but some people can do anything they want! Thanks for the reply anyway


what would you advise to plant along our southern boundary that would look nice to look out at but wouldnt entirely block off nice view? At the moment its chain link fence with a few small shrubs. I'd like one or two nice trees.
